Wanderlust Of Imagination



In the endless expanse of what exists and the magic of what can be... fantasy is the luster of opalescence conceived in a continual curve of mother-of-pearl panache spinning through a sacred spiral in effervescence they arise - in bare necessity and break the surface - perceptions of prismatic potential bending colors in the light of consciousness daydreams delve between realms of serenity and dampened spirits amidst meditations to unfurl the waves’ curl of life’s mysteries where faceted riptides flash sun-diamonds and twilight’s bruised beauty is but an abstract - in mixed moody moon-shades of earth’s passion and human nature enriched with celestial nuances I reflect within this mirrored space as I search to adorn my naked thoughts in nacreous chic breathing bliss and sipping soulful seas my wild whimsy in wanderlust glides like an albatross seeking the iridescence of the abalone shell -- a marvel of profound imagination Susan Ashley January 10, 2019 ~ First Place ~ Free Verse Style Only Poetry Contest Emile Pinet - Sponsor *nacreous: consisting of or having the luster of mother-of -pearl*

Your voluminous, variegated vocabulary vaults a vortex of volcanic vapor over my already clouded brain and voraciously devours what's left of my venal, vulgar mind (whatever all that means)… All seriousness aside, I really like this poem. Good job! :) gw
